Fitness Friday: Tone It Up Bikini Series Week 5

Week 5 is almost over! I cannot believe it. Have a read below and find out how I got on.



The Mealplan

This weeks meals have been pretty good. I did have a twirl one day but everything in moderation! I am trying my best though  to make sure I make heathy choices this week. Instead of having pizza James and I made our own using a tortilla instead and it was super yummy!

The Workouts

This week has been pretty bad on the workout front as I had a poorly teething baby who only wanted Mummy cuddles. So I have really struggled and not given it my all. I have been trying to get up early at 6am to fit it in but only once has Ailsa not woken up when I have gotten up. I have managed to do a lot of walking though which I am really happy with.

Overall Feelings

This week could definitely have been better. I need to work on getting up early to fit in my workout and that is my goal for next week.

Father's Day Gift Guide

With Father's day just around the corner, I asked my husband what things he would like and he came up with the following list.


Father's day gift list


1. Raspberry Pi 3 Official Desktop Starter Kit (16Gb, Black)

A Raspberry Pi is like a mini computer and perfect for anyone who likes to fiddle around with computers and the like. We have 2 of these at home and use them all the time.

2. Grillstock: The BBQ Book

With summer on the horizon the BBQ's will be coming out and it's typically a Man's domain at least for us it is. James loves his cooking and especially getting the BBQ out, this book is perfect for that. 

3.Father and Baby T-Shirt Set- Notonthehighstreet

Perfect for Daddy and Baby, I love this matching set and I think it would look so cute especially for a first fathers day.

4.   Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity Tracker and Sleep Wristband - Black

James and I have recently gotten back into fitness and working out. We decided to get ourselves Fitbits and they have really spurred us on in our journey. We think they would be perfect for anyone who is into health and fitness.

5. Whisky Tasting Set- Notonthehighstreet

For any Whisky lover this set of 5 Whisky's is perfect especially if they like to try new ones.

Fitness Friday: Tone It Up Bikini Series Week 4

I cannot believe that we are halfway through the Tone It Up Bikini Series. I am definitely seeing changes in the way I look at what I am eating and making sure I fit my workouts in.



The Mealplan

I have found that by having the weeks mealplan on the fridge I am sticking to it so will be carrying that on for quite a while I think. I am still struggling to keep it up over the weekend so will be working on that this weekend.

The Workouts

I have stuck to my workouts well this week. Maybe not as good as I could be but much better than the last few weeks so there has been an improvement. Getting my workouts in is something I will working on even more over the coming weeks to get it into my routine.

Overall Feelings

I am feeling really good this week and hope I can continue to work on getting my workouts in and keeping it up over the weekends.

Fitness Friday: Tone It Up Bikini Series Week 3

We are now on week 3 of the Tone It Up Bikini Series. This week has gone much better than the last 2. I have really committed myself and I feel it is paying off.

The Mealplan

I have really stuck to the meals this week. I have written down the weeks plan and I have it on the fridge which means I can constantly check what I should be eating but I also switch it up if I am not feeling it- obviously for something healthy, but nonetheless it as made a huge difference this week. When I was feeling something sweet I made some banana ice cream it was so so yummy and a perfect healthy treat.

The Workouts

I have managed to get my workouts in. I love doing the Tone It Up workouts as Karena and Katrina are so positive and they have amazing bodies so work as fab motivation. I am also doing my ab workouts although I have started week 1 3 times now. Hopefully I can carry on with it and not miss a session.

Overall Feelings

This week has been fab so far and I think changing the way I have been keeping track of the meal plan is working. I am much less tempted by naughty food. Making the effort to workout after Ailsa has gone to bed has been a challenge but I have done it and I know that I can do. I just have to get it in.

Cherishing the Small Moments

Today as I  watched Ailsa learn to stand from sitting all on her own and then confidently walk across the room for the first time, I realised how lucky I was to witness this huge milestone for her. It has taken 5 months of her walking around furniture and holding our hands to get to this point and I just
love watching her grow in confidence and see her developing new skills. I get to spend everyday with my daughter and watch her grow.



 I get see all these little moments, using a spoon for the first time, watching her figure out how to put a puzzle block into a space, see her put pieces of her mega blocks together, clap her hand for the first time and finally figure out she could walk without support. It has truly made me realise I need to treasure these moments as they are such big accomplishments for Ailsa. She is growing and learning everyday. She learns new words, learns how to do something new and shows me all these new skills every day and these are the only times I will get to see her do these things for the first time as she is growing and learning I fear there will be fewer firsts and I don't want to miss out on any of them.

I love to watch the pride in her face when we praise and encourage her for walking on her own or doing anything new that she has learned. I love seeing the small changes that no one else will notice and I love that I have been able to watch her grow from a baby into a toddler full of energy and determination. The past 14 months have been the most amazing time. I have learned so much about myself and being a mum but honestly the best thing is getting to be a part of these moments, helping Ailsa to learn and with James being the ones to encourage her on her way.

We are trying to raise Ailsa to be independent and strong and trying to encourage her to do things when she is ready rather than push her when she is not. I think that is why we love seeing these moments so much as we know that it has been Ailsa who is learning and copying in her own time and the look on her face when she works it out is just priceless. Today just reminded me of how lucky we are to have such a wonderful little girl and just how much love I have for her. I plan to cherish all these moments, every day is special and I am going to keep reminding myself of that.
